Britain's Got Talent 2014: Amanda Holden slams X Factor

Amanda Holden

Amanda Holden has taken a few swipes at The X Factor... and its judges!

The Britain's Got Talent judge reckons that her show is the biggest of the two and it's because it has a nicer panel that don't bitch.

That's sure to make tings a tad awkward when she next meets up with Simon Cowell!

Speaking ahead of the return to the Britain's Got Talent 2014 this weekend, Amanda gushed: "We’ve become the biggest show in the ­country, our ratings are now higher than X Factor.

"I think viewers prefer seeing a panel who get along. The last thing you need is a load of people bitching."

In an interview with the Daily Star Sunday newspaper, Amanda continued: “Me and the other judges on BGT all like each other.

"I used to say our show was good because of the acts and X Factor was to do with the judges.

“But now I think it’s both on our show. The chemistry between us is amazing.”

Meanwhile, Amanda revealed that she knows just how all the acts are feeling when they step out on stage in front of her and her fellow judges.

"When I auditioned for Shrek in the West End I was in front of a panel of people," she told the tabloid. "And I was sh**ting myself.

"It’s not different ­because I’m on TV. I get so nervous.

"So I absolutely know what they’re going through.”

Britain's Got Talent 2014 begins this weekend on ITV from 7:15PM.
